North Korea has accused Japan of aspiring to rule a "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" beginning with an invasion of Korea with the assistance of the United States.What a clever invasion plan. Trick the Norks into a six party talks. The only reason to invade North Korea is to remove the nukes and the wackos who run the country like a prison camp. Prosperity is just not a word you associate with a basket case economy like North Korea's. A country whose principal revenue source is drug dealing and making fake currency does not have much to offer an invading force in terms of booty.
Rodong Sinmun, North Korea's state newspaper, said Sunday the Japanese had joined with the United States' "vicious hostile policy" toward North Korea and that the "military threat" they perceive from the Koreans "is a far-fetched allegation fabricated by themselves."
The paper's comments followed a day of talks in Washington between U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and their Japanese counterparts on the two countries' security relationship.
The two countries urged North Korea to return to six-party talks aimed at ending its nuclear program and reiterated the need for China to resolve its tensions with Taiwan peacefully.
